Sellers who would like to offer mineral specimens to me have to stick to the following "rules for quotation" (RFQ):
1) I only buy for my collection. I am NO dealer. Hence I do not buy flats or whole collections, just individual pieces.
2) I am only interested in specimens that fullfill my personal beauty requirements for my collection (as explained in that section), which by nature are subjective. Even if you think you have the
"holy grail in minerals" in your hands, I will personally have to judge on its beauty TO ME. For sure there is no need to offer me gravel, mediocre specimens, or specimens that are just ubiquitous
and have nothing special to them.
3) When offering a specimen ALWAYS inlcude:
b) photos (and/or video),
(including repairs, refills, stabilisation, radiation, ...)
e) your asking price in USD or EUR.
Offers that do not live up to the RFQs will be simply ignored. Sellers continously breaching RFQs and/or pushy sellers will be banned for good.
